“Their cadence is so sensual that it’s virtually irresistible!” —Miami Sun-Sentinel

The fifth of the series of multi-cultural outdoor concerts brings violins and flutes weaving lilting melodies against the backdrop of driving Afro-Cuban rhythms. From the first note, you’ll want to jump out of your seat. The orchestra’s repertoire ranges from traditional Danzón and Cha-Cha-Cha to the latest salsa and timba grooves with surprising twists: you should hear their spin on the old church tune “Golden Slippers.” As one critic put it: “Imagine a blend of Tito Puente and a tango, and you’ll begin to get an idea of the power and beauty of this music.”
The dance floor will be set, a pre-event Latin dance instruction will get you in the mood and, cocktails, dinners from Sol Food available on-site, dancing, and playground makes for fun for the whole family. All outdoors under Marin skies.
This is an outdoor concert. Please dress accordingly.
Beer, wine, signature cocktails, juice, standard assortment of non-alcoholic drinks, sweets, savories, treats and dinners are available for purchase._
